I'll Be Back - In The Fall

Summer is here and lots of company coming and activities planned. Jazz Festival is near the top of my list, as is pushing paint around. Hope y'all have a fabulous, creative summer. See you in September.


  1. AWWWWWW. Summer hiatus for the Sand Sweeper? You gonna leave us hanging? Well have fun.

  2. Hi Jay,
    You're a breath of fresh air, lol! Just taking my lead from my favorite tv shows (Person of Interest, Elementary...) If I have to wait, so do you.

    Just want to thank you again for your interest and I hope you have a wonderful summer as well. (You know, one of these days I'm going to figure out who you are and where you hide your creations - I did mention one of my favorite shows is Elementary, eh?)

  3. Hi Vickie,
    I don't hide them, I give them away if they are good enough. As for who I am,.... a fan of yours.
    Did you see my question about the wire? Special wire?
    Go to the beach this summer and get some ideas for the Saga of the Sand Sweeper. I bet she'll show up. Go early.

    1. Hi Jay, yes, I did see your question about the wire, and it was promptly buried under a pile of spring cleaning! Really sorry about that! I studied the pic and could not figure out where that lovely warm reddish gleam comes from. I use natural copper wire, uncoated, so, if anything, it should get duller as it ages. I photograph under ott light (daylight), but I have halogen pot ceiling lights, and I've noticed those lights lend a reddish glow to my increasingly platinum hair. I had thought my true nature was finally coming through (I'm really a redhead at heart!), but now I wonder if it wasn't just the halogen lights, lol.
      I appreciate your comments about the Sand Sweeper. Yes, the music is just like the sound from rubbing the rim of a fine crystal glass - sort of lovely, haunting, with a touch of almost unbearably brittle shrillness to it. I have an idea for representing the crystals in her hair. Hope I can pull it off. Drat, now you've got my imagination going again!
      The vessel is interesting. You're right - it unfolded in the doing. Still need to put the finishing touches on it, but want that to happen as the process unfolds.
      Take care,

  4. Ok Vickie, It's fall, where are you and the Sandsweeper?We have missed you.
